It is no secret that EA wants to go head-to-head with Activision’s Call of Duty franchise. Two years ago it began with the Medal of Honor reboot, then switched over to Battlefield 3. This year’s offering is Medal of Honor: Warfighter, and we now have several minutes of gameplay footage to check out.
Warfighter is sticking with the Tier 1 operators motif that the company introduced with the last Medal of Honor. The above video features a crew of operators invading a pirate town in Somalia to take out a particular gang of pirates. Along with some gameplay it also shows off the Frostbite 2 engine.
Currently, if you pre-order Warfighter, you will be given access to the U.S. Navy Seal sniper, which EA says takes about 40 hours to earn in the game. Medal of Honor: Warfighter will ship on October 23 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
